The Game's Afoot
Good silent evocation of a classic Holmes tale. The film plot is more or less as it was in the story - no doubt - judging from Doyle's supervision of the Copper Beeches movie, he would have liked this movie as there is little sensationalism and much melodrama. All the actors are good. Unfortunately, the print is rather dark and murky - but, if you gave read the story - then the film is easy to follow.
